The late Alec Farmer was an acknowledged expert in the field of silver soldered copper boilers for model locomotives, and this book should be considered a MUST HAVE regarding the subject. The book is written in an easy to read style, and each step is illustrated with good quality (although, black and white) photographs, and documents the construction of a large one inch scale boiler. NOTE: this book deals ONLY with construction methods and techniques, and NOT design! However, this book is an excellent investment for Model Engineers, and those interested in the live steam hobby.
